Direct Instruction. This is the “meat” of your lesson plan. It’s where you present the new concept that is included in the lesson objectives. Prepare your students for success by pre-teaching key vocabulary words that are essential to understanding the concept or text you will introduce to them. When students know these key words in advance, they can focus more of their energy into learning the concept or understanding the text.
The lesson should begin with a topic derived from the adopted standards-based curriculum for a school or district. Because it relates to specific information the teacher is trying to impart, the topic should be part of the larger curriculum (such as unit instruction) required at your grade level. However, the specific topic for the lesson may emerge from student questions or interests (e.g., a lesson about the environment or space exploration), from community resources (e.g., the Rio Grande River, Manzano Mountains, Carlsbad Caverns), from local expectations included in the content standards (e.g., cattle ranching, New Mexico water rights, the connection between language and culture), and other topics listed in the standards (e.g., data analysis, geometry, life science).
